Shana Kay Memorial Scholarship
The Shana Kay Memorial Scholarship was established to remember Shana, who was a diligent and enthusiastic student at UW-Madison planning for a career in speech pathology. Sadly, her life ended after her Freshman year in July 2005 from viral encephalitis. Shana was a spirited but serious student who was committed to helping people with communicative disorders. Her compassionate and magnetic personality would have contributed to her success as a speech-language pathologist. Beginning in Fall 2008, the Shana Kay Memorial Scholarship is granted to a student with a commitment to excellence in Communication Sciences & Disorders.
Faculty recommend an undergraduate student who has:
- completed the gateway courses and is in the major,
- a commitment to excellence in Communication Sciences and Disorders (preferably studying Speech-Language Pathology), and
